With a challenging New Moon in Libra on October 12th-13th 2015 it’s time to set all your affairs in order.
This new moon activates a part of your life that is no stranger to activity. It comes at a point when various cycles are closing, giving you another chance to tidy up loose ends and move on. After years of turmoil, life is in the process of finding a new balance starting now and all the way into March 2016.
This October's new moon is right on the heels of Mercury retrograde in Libra, giving you a chance to deal with all the new information that has come to light over the past three weeks and fine-tune relationships and agreements. You have until October 24th (while the moon is still young and Mercury is still going over old ground) to set old affairs on a new course.
Don't expect things to go off without a hitch... The new moon is closely opposite Uranus in Aries and widely square Pluto in Capricorn. This puts pressure on you to resolve conflict between your desire for change and greater freedom on the one hand and survival necessities on the other. But you have seen it all before by now. You have had four blood moon lunar eclipses in Aries and Libra for two years now, plus the Uranus-Pluto square since 2012, (not to mention Mars’ seven month stay in Libra back in early 2014). This has been turning all things Libra-ruled upside down for a long time now... Time to get things straightened out!
There is a new influence at play, however, that pushes you toward certain channels, blocking others off. This is Venus in Virgo square Saturn in Sagittarius giving this new moon a bit of a squeeze. We have had this square before over the summer, but not from this new zodiacal vantage point. This means that, from mid-October, sorting things out will require you to take financial realities into account, work with any limitations and reach for a workable yet innovative compromise.
How does the 2015 Libra New Moon affect your Star-Sign?
It's time for a fresh start with significant others in your life! This is especially so where a romantic relationship or business partnership is concerned, and in how you meet people in general. Your relationships have been in turmoil for the past couple of years, partly due to changes in others and partly due to your own process of finding a new identity. The past three weeks have brought new facts to light to help you make an informed decision on that front. While changes won’t be completed until March 2016, you have until October 24th to set an important relationship on a new footing. Finding balance may involve meeting someone half way to safeguard your position, despite your own desire for freedom and progress. Sobering realisations involving work and travel, a publicity project, legal and ethical concerns, or limiting day to day realities will have a role to play in forcing your hand. What's done is done. This is your chance for a fresh start in how you relate to people, helping you to better promote your interests in the long run.
This new moon brings a fresh start at work, as well as with any health concerns. It’s an opportunity to establish improved daily habits. Your day to day life has been chaotic for the past couple of years, be that due to hectic work schedules not giving you a moment’s peace or due to health concerns that kept you on your toes. It was also partly due to a kind of spiritual disquiet on your part, urging you to put feelers out there for the future. The past three weeks gave you a chance to revisit any health concerns or problems at work and review your daily routine in light of new information. While changes won’t be complete until March 2016, you have until October 24th to establish a more workable daily rhythm in your life. You may have to compromise some of your more inspired ideas in order to deliver work on time or meet any publishing or other (e.g. legal or exam) deadlines. Alternatively, if it's a health concern you are dealing with, you may need to combine any alternative healing methods with a more conventional approach. Sobering realities concerning love or money will be important in shaping your new routine and work ethic. New habits and work agreements have staying power.
Has your love life been full of ups and downs? Or maybe it's a creative project or a child that has been giving you a headache? This new moon gives you the opportunity to put the past two years behind you and make a fresh start in matters close to your heart. You have spent two years pulled between your search for personal happiness and self-realisation and your desire to find your place in a changing world. The past month has brought important information to light about something or someone dear to you, allowing you to pursue your personal projects with greater conviction. This may be making room for more romance in your life, trying for a child, starting your own business or developing a creative talent. While this month will initiate a process of final changes that will take you to March 2016, you have until October 24th to set everything into motion. Moving forward with your heart's desires whilst securing others’ trust and financial support may fly in the face of your social milieu. Facing up to certain truths concerning your partner, home or family is likely to force your hand. You have an opportunity to build a better partnership if you speak straight from the heart.
This new moon allows you to make a fresh start in personal, family, home, and real-estate matters. Home is very important for you, dear Cancer. And yet your whole life's foundation, as well as your life direction, have been majorly shaken up in the past couple of years. Where is home? How do you feel about your parents or home-land? Are you ready to have a family of your own? Information coming to light over the past three weeks helped you reconsider such matters and revisit your roots. Matters highlighted by this new moon will not come full circle until March 2016. Nonetheless, you now have until October 24th to tidy up loose ends and move forward. Any decisions you make concerning a residential or family matter will have to take your partner into account, as well as fly in the face of continued instability in your career. Pressures around your job and daily commute, as well as any health concerns will also bear upon the decisions you make. You have an opportunity to take steps concerning your base of operations that will make you more efficient and productive in the long run.
You life has been in mayhem for the past couple of years, with so much movement and so many ideas flying around that you undoubtedly changed your mind more than once about your future vision. This new moon gives you the opportunity to make sense of it all and get into your groove. You may be in the process of negotiating a contract or you may be in the midst of meetings and communications that affect your daily existence. Take your time, as the arrangements you make will not be fully settled before March 2016. Still, the past three weeks have brought new information to light: you have until October 24th to decide exactly what shape you want your daily movements to take. New agreements will certainly require hard work on your part and may seem to fly in the face of your greater vision for the future. You may have to face the fact that the money is not what you would like it to be. As long as what you do speaks to your heart that’s ok for now. Experimenting and learning new things is good, for it will eventually bring you closer to happiness and self-actualisation.
Time to make a fresh start in your finances and rebuild your strength! Your life's material and emotional stability has been shaken up by constant changes in the past couple of years and this new moon brings you an opportunity to build greater self reliance. This is easier now than it was even a month ago, because new information has come to light that allows you to make more informed decisions about your assets - be that your income, your talents, your possessions, your body, or an important relationship - and to invest in what’s of greatest value to you. You will see the upshot of this final series of decisions by March 2016. Meanwhile you have until October 24th to set matters that give you a greater sense of self-assurance and security on a new course. Doing so will require you to stand on your own two feet and be enterprising in the face of financial instability. It may also require you to invest in someone romantically despite your fears. Personal limitations and others stemming from your home and family will have a part to play in your decisions. But making the most of your talents and resources now will help you build a more stable foundation for the future.
The spotlight is on you this month. There's lots of details that you need to take care of, many of which have been dragging on for a couple of years - especially where a relationship is concerned. Facts that have come to light over the past few weeks mean that this is your chance to make a more informed new start. While you won’t see the end of the matter until March 2016, when the third and final lunar eclipse of the series takes place in your sign, you now have until October 24th to put your reworked ideas into action. This might involve carefully negotiating family and real-estate matters, despite others being unpredictable or uncooperative. You are no stranger to diplomacy and you will have to put your communicative skills to good use this month, especially as someone (possibly a woman) may be trying to secretly undermine you. On another level, if you are tense and run down this new moon brings you a chance to get to the bottom of things healthwise. Communication is key, helping you learn the truth of a matter or secure a much needed agreement.
This is a new moon of endings for you, dear Scorpio. Time to put the past behind you and look forward to a new beginning. The last two years have been difficult, with many factors affecting your life that were beyond your control - whether that was health problems, increased stress around your job or a demanding daily schedule. The past three weeks have seen commotion behind the scenes: you may have been secretly preparing for changes at work or daily routine, recuperating away from the spotlight, or finishing up with the past ready for something new. A deep psychological shift is in the making, allowing you to take a fresh approach to life. Time for one final push to eliminate anything that drains your energy! This process won’t be fully completed before March 2016 but, meanwhile, you have until October 24th to clear out old debris and prepare for a fresh start next month when you have a new moon in your sign. This may involve following your intuition, letting go of ideas no longer relevant to you and finding innovative working solutions. You may feel socially isolated and this, alongside sobering financial realities, will have a role to play in the decisions you take. Focus on clearing house and rely on your intuition, as this will help you build your strength and resources.
Time to re-define your place in the world, dear Sagittarius! A friendship that’s gone through highs and lows may be put on a new footing with this new moon. Alternatively you may be introduced to a new social circle or get involved in a joint endeavour. You’ve spent two years striving to find like-minded people with whom you can join forces, pursue your dreams and find happiness. Or you may have been put through the wringer whilst looking for true love and companionship. You have a chance for a fresh start now, the upshot of which you won’t see clearly until March 2016. The last three weeks may have seen friendships changed, old allies come forth and social dynamics rearranged. You have until October 24th to put your social network to good use and reposition yourself among friends. You may have to compromise a little to make everyone happy and this may be hard. You may feel that you are limiting your creative freedom and happiness to please others or secure your financial position. You may also feel like you are not getting the necessary respect at times. But all this is part of a learning curve: showing team spirit now will help you grow and earn greater respect in due course.
Time for a fresh start in your career! This new moon is a chance to refresh your public image and push onward with long overdue goals. Your life has been shaken up from top to bottom for two years now in a process that won’t be completed until March 2016. Meanwhile, the past three weeks have brought new information to light that allows you to recalibrate your course. This may involve reviewing your role in the company or your relationship with a boss or other authority figure. Or it may involve revising your professional goals and the image others have of you. You have until October 24th to adjust your life direction. You are under great pressure to survive and adapt and finding agreement with your superiors or reaching your goals seems to require compromises when it comes to home, real-estate or family affairs that you are unwilling to make. Legal constraints may also be forcing your hand. Or it may be obstacles with a marketing project or with travel and study plans that are making you somewhat pessimistic. Assume your responsibilities and speak up. That will help smooth out this period of transition.
This is your chance to break free from limiting situations and expand your outlook. You may need to finalise a trip or relocation to a foreign country, address a pending legal matter, or finally give the go ahead with a marketing project. If you are in higher education, you can make a fresh start with your work and studies after this new moon. Your way of thinking has been changing radically in the past few years. You now find yourself with a totally new outlook on life, liberated from previous conceptions. While this process won’t be completed until March 2016, the past few weeks have brought new information to light, which allows you to view your future with fresh eyes. You have until October 24th to finalise travel plans or bring legal, educational or marketing ideas in line with your adjusted vision. You may have to compromise the purity of your ideas a bit in order to resolve legal disputes or secure a promotional contract. Financial pressures involving public funding, loans or the division of property are also bound to force your hand. Taking steps to break new ground now will ultimately earn you a better place in the world.
Time for a fresh start in an intimate relationship! This is also an opportunity to set all your financial affairs in order - especially where loans, taxes, grants, shared resources and other financial agreements are concerned. You have had an intense few years were your emotional ties and finances are concerned and your priorities have changed as a result. You are now in the final stretch in a process of transformation that won’t be completed until March 2016. Meanwhile, certain truths may have come to light in the past three weeks, allowing you to resolve financial disputes, or have a heart to heart and either rebuild trust or break off relations with someone altogether. This may require you to become more flexible in your principles and attitude to money and resources - especially if you want to join forces and face the social instabilities that surround you together. Any financial decisions you make may be squeezed by your partner on the one hand and a boss or authority figure on the other. Clearing the air and showing that you are ready for change will earn you respect. A financial agreement or merger could also give you a better chance to reach your goals.
